An outstanding collection of seriously wicked vampire tales by the authors of Vampire Writers Support Group. (and a cute little satire of Twilight titled “Mary Sue Wants To Die Forever”, by yours truly) 😈
This is so frigging creepy, I had to dive into it and play around. (That’s what she said.) But, seriously, LOOK.
There’s a lot of debate about this lake in Tanzania, which apparently is inhabited by fish which supply the birds with food. However, this very still lake has an extremely base alkalinity that preserves animals in a horrifically beautiful petrified state after they fly into its still surface. This got my mind racing about how water is a symbol of life, and this water is deadly as fuck. And yes, there is a chance it is a hoax, but I don’t like to believe that. And yes, the animals are posed. Read the damn article. Either way, I want this book so badly it hurts inside.

Happy October, everyone!
As my blog approaches its third anniversary this month, I celebrate how lucky I am to be on PDMI Publishing, a publisher perfectly poised to fill a giant void left in the marketplace by the Big Five. A void that can only be filled by a company with a vision to see this need, and the resources to act on it. You’ll be seeing a lot of great things from PDMI in the months and years to come.
One of them is Hope Ohlarik.
She’s PDMI’s hidden gem, a poet who can take you to the darkest corners of your soul, then lift you up to joy.
Her poetry book Through Eyes Of Jaded Hope, cuts right into the darkest corners of the human soul. Not a light-hearted beach read, to be sure; but as she expresses it, Keep reading, keep going deeper, and deeper, maybe the answer you’ll find if you linger. The pains of our existence are never a casual read, but they are an essential one if we are to find the answers to our lives. Only our nadir can make us truly appreciate the simple joys of life. Hope guides you along the river Styx, then delivers you joy when you complete your crossing.
This insight into our real characters bodes very well indeed for Hope as she enters the world of fiction with her forthcoming PDMI novel “Broken.”
Her fearless hero Maria Daron will come to life in the pages. For those like Hope, with the gift of insight into what makes people real, are uniquely qualified to bring a real soul to fictional characters. And through the adventures of heroes like Maria Daron, we find the hero in ourselves.
